Daytrip to Gasometer in Oberhausen

The Gasometer Oberhausen is an outstanding landmark of the Western Ruhr Area and in particular of the town of Oberhausen. Since 1994 annually changing exhibitions of impressive magnitude have turned the Gasometer into a successful cultural location. “The mountains are calling” is the name of the current exhibition in the Gasometer Oberhausen. The dark and semi-glossy walls of the Gasometer, the extraordinary steel structure and the eight-time echo turn the building into an “industrial cathedral”. Highlight: We can take the glass elevator to the roof of the Gasometer and enjoy the beautiful panorama of the Western Ruhr Area.
